Paper on a new way to run forecast models with multiple hurricanes at the same time released online in Weather and Forecasting

  • Summary:

HWRF is NOAA’s primary model for tropical cyclone (tropical depressions, tropical storms, and hurricanes) forecast. The distance between places where forecasts are made in the model (the grid resolution) must be small to make accurate forecasts. 172 more words

Two-part paper on the intensification of Hurricane Edouard published in Monthly Weather Review

 Summary: Hurricane Edouard (2014) is examined using radar onboard NOAA P-3 aircraft that flew the storm. Two periods are shown, one when the storm was intensifying to a major hurricane and the other when the storm was weakening. 171 more words

HRD Seminar – Dr. Andy Hazelton, Princeton University and NOAA/GFDL – 28 October 2016

Dr. Hazelton presented a seminar on “Convective Burst Development and Evolution in Two Simulated Atlantic TCs”.

Abstract

Understanding the structure and evolution of the tropical cyclone (TC) inner core remains an elusive challenge in tropical meteorology, especially transient asymmetric features such as localized strong updrafts known as convective bursts (CBs).  366 more words
